conversation · nuances · expression
This is the seventh book in the scalae architecture + architects international ebook collection. Alvaro Siza Vieira illustrates and shares a magical voyage on which his path is crossed by the deepest of feelings, the fundamentals of his principles and ways of creating, and his experiences as a citizen, architect, and sculptor. As he wanders, he talks, smokes, sings, tells of his troubles, and protests about things that lack meaning, all the while sketching the slim silhouette of a woman who expresses the quiet pleasure of someone who has just raised her glass to toast another person whose own glass is also visible in Siza's delicate drawing.
It is a voyage that spans the architect's life and memory, squeezed into a form of time that is simultaneously past, present, and future. In it, the master architect from Porto shows his affection for the people who, through their silence or their words, have been or still are somewhere on his horizon. People and architecture that throb in the hands of a tireless draughtsman, architect, and sculptor who, true to his Portuguese roots, is in love with the oceans of beauty and life.
